Some will say that DNA can sort out evolutionary trends or the uniqueness of created kinds. However, It can only support, not prove one's religio-philosophical views. Even as the development of gene manipulation continues the answers to intial life forms, e.g. the origin of life or the absolute final end of all life will never be answered. All mankind must put their observations (the practice of science) within a religio-philosophical framework. This is more fully discussed on the web page titled the Interfacing of Religion. Philosophy and Science.
Educators have an obligation to teach what science can and can not answer. Sadly, evolution is being taught as science when it is not. As has been said before it is not even a theory. If one desires to test it as a theory of transmutation of life forms, it is directly falsified (no observed evidence). See page on Religion, Philosophy and Science.
In the above images I choose the religio-philosophical view that they represent designed common function. This supports the concept of a Designer-God.
